The restaurant and cafe scene are still a tad underdeveloped in Logan. We live in Shailer Park and work in Springwood - so we're fairly across most of what is on offer in our fair city. When we do eat out, we often find ourselves travelling to Brisbane or the Gold Coast as the local options are either underwhelming or booked out! We're not alone either - friends in Cornubia are always popping down to the GC for special occassions and today my parents are driving from Springwood to Sanctuary Cove for lunch. #bringrestaurantstologan! #feedlogan #sendhelp
Imagine my surprise when I received an invitation via Instagram to come along and try out the newest addition to the local area: Oishi Teppanyaki and Cafe in Slacks Creek! I've always said that if you can't find it in Slacks Creek, it doesn't exist. I was mostly talking about tradespeople though, not specialty restaurants!
Oishi is in the set of shops at the end of Randall Street, where it meets Kingston Road. Randall Street is a gem of a place and I'm there several times a week at Crossfit Arena, picking up printing from Minuteman Press or visiting some of our tech services clients who live on that street! Oishii being at the top of Randall means there is plenty of parking and easy access, which is always a plus for a family restaurant and cafe. It seemed a tad odd to me to have a cafe combined with a teppanyaki restaurant, but I do agree the area needs more good coffee! Oishi has a great little takeaway window for your morning coffee hit and some great leaf-tea, too.
